Hello Hanish,
I tried to duplicate the issue on our latest nightly build, latest released version 43.0.1, version 36.0 and version 36.0.1 but I couldn't reproduce the issue on any of these.

Name 	Firefox
Version 	36.0.1 	
User Agent 	Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:36.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/36.0



Name 	Firefox
Version 	46.0a1
Build ID 	20151216030229	
Update Channel 	nightly
User Agent 	Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:46.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/46.0

Please try running in safe mode and see if that solves the problem. Let me know. I would also suggest to to upgrade to the latest version of Firefox.
